Ian and Ann met us at ours today.
We had a long-standing date to take them out for a slap-up lunch at The George Hotel in Stamford in celebration of their birthdays last year.
It’s always more than just a meal at The George, and today was no exception…
…superb food, fantastic service resulting in a great atmosphere for a posh lunch at 12.30.
We kicked-off with a glass of bubbly each and with my thirst quenched, I opted for the Chicken followed by my absolute favourite – Sherry Trifle!
Still, enough of me; the celebrations ended just before 2pm with a surprise ‘candle’ (more like a flame thrower!) carefully placed on a small cake, courtesy of the Restaurant. It surprised us too, and we think the Waiter heard us mentioning the ‘double birthday’ when we first arrived – and exercised his initiative!
We headed back to ours for a cuppa and a bit more chat before the Birthdayees said their goodbyes and headed home.
A super day, and good to catch-up with our good friends.
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
